Talk about your wrong turns. This raw video sent in by NBCDFW viewer Courtney Riggan shows Arlington Fire-Rescue pulling out what was a shiny silver kit car from a small creek on the University of Texas at Arlington campus.
Police say the 57-year-old driver was watching a racing event at UTA, but as he was leaving, he lost control of the car and went over a curb, only to land in a small creek.

The man was able to quickly climb out to safety, thanks to the open-top roof, and no injuries were reported.

According to witnesses on the scene, the car was worth $150,000 to $200,000 dollars.

The race the driver was watching is part of the 10th annual Texas Autocross event that included 35 cars from 14 colleges.
